Management – Journal of Contemporary Management Issues is an international academic journal, with the primary aim of disseminating the relevant scientific knowledge and information in the field of management and other related fields. We are committed to the practice of anonymous peer review and open access. We seek to encourage the scientific dialogue among the Central-European and South-East European region with the developed market economies, as well as the emerging markets from Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. Therefore, we strive to publish high-quality research in all fields of management, promoting development and competitiveness of individuals, organizations and societies.


The Journal deals with pressing problems, not only of general nature, but especially with those occurring in the countries in transition. In fact, it aims to cover functional issues, specific topics and general aspects of management related to all kinds of organizations – manufacturing and service companies, profit-making firms and non-profit organizations, private and public, as well as large and small enterprises.


Functional issues refer to the pressing problems of the four fundamental management functions:

Specific topics will be related to the current problems in specific management areas and the production activities, such as:

Some general management problems will be also included in the Journal. These problems deal with the subject, goals and methods of the management science, theory of management, as well as with the ethics and social responsibility of management as a profession, etc. Special attention will be paid to the problems of strategic management which represents a synthesis of functional and other specific management fields.
